Activity 5: Have a Ball

“I’ll tell you how we can manage. There’s a long hall out there, and we can dance grandly, and no one will see us.”

Laurie, Chapter 3, “The Laurence Boy”


Meg and Jo love to go to balls. Learn a dance step they might have used by watching the video below.

Once you’ve completed this activity, find the corresponding sticker from your sticker sheet and add it to your quilt. Email a photo of the finished quilt to by October 17 to be entered into a drawing for Little Women prizes.



This reminds us of Louisa May herself. In 1861 she was living in Orchard House, the Alcott family home in Concord, Massachusetts. In spite of the fact that Louisa considered needlework an “abomination,” she wrote to a friend that she was “sewing violently on patriotic blue shirts.” Before her writing career took off, Louisa often took in needlework to help support her family.
